Music and Animated Film

Daniel Goldmark currently has the distinction of being the first musicologist to discuss music and cartoons at length. For this week, I am assigning his chapter on “What’s Opera Doc?” from Tunes for ‘Toons, but really, I could have assigned any chapter from his book. It’s just that good.

Some of you may have already seen some discussions of the music from Triplets of Belleville circulating around. This one is my favorite since it describes all of the standard tropes that appear in the film. There is also an extended film review available through Film Quarterly (JSTOR).
